The system is pretty strict about checking certain things prior to  
loading an Input Manager. TextMate knows this and probably did the  
right thing, but you might want to confirm ownership and permissions  
by running this in a Terminal.

     sudo chown -R root:admin /Library/InputManagers

Then restart Safari and see if it shows up. If not, confirm that the  
Input Manager got installed by seeing what's in /Library/ 
InputManagers. Maybe check the Console for errors as well.
